The SEED
The Seed, 1980Formed: Bangor, North Wales, 1974, by HOLLAND, SMITH and CALLOWAY. Became the driving force behind Welsh Punk / New Wave, back in the glory days of Clustcwyr. Finally split in 82 after the aptly titled DISENFRANCHISED EP. Style: Initially raw pub-rock they progressed to a more mature punk sound before dabbling with electronics on their second album. Songwriters: group penned. Trivia: Had label managed rivalry with the infamous DIRYWIO. The bands were actually quite friendly, as demonstrated by their effective merger into the ANGELS OF DEATH.
